IronPython 2.0

In  the new year,  I would like to deepen my expertise in all-things-Pythonic.  One version I just installed today was Iron Python:

IronPython is a new implementation of the Python programming language running on .NET. It supports an interactive console with fully dynamic compilation. It is well integrated with the rest of the .NET Framework and makes all .NET libraries easily available to Python programmers, while maintaining full compatibility with the Python language.

My hope is to be doing a lot of programming in "generic Python" and then take advantage of specific platform libraries (such .NET using IronPython and the Java libraries using Jython). Let's see how well that strategy works.

(BTW, I look forward to seeing the upcoming new book on IronPython: IronPython in Action by Michael J. Foord and Christian Muirhead.)
